    I think both. I don't have the figure, but reviewers from YouTube have conformed that it does fit.

    I have the G1 style and it stores in the chest (behind the flip out crown) just fine.

    Worth every penny!!! Thank you Fakebusker!!! I used a hot knife and chopped off the face mask gimmick. These two pieces have transformed (horrible pun intended) my least favorite TR figure to the best IMO.

    I finally picked up some Painter's Pens from Walmart and matched the helmet close enough, as well as painting Galvatron's face silver just like the Takara version.

    The silver really does a good job of bringing out his face detail. I'm going to try both helmets again using the higher-grade prints, but as is, it's good enough for now.

    Thanks John! Your support is very much appreciated!

    Your Galvatrons look fantastic! The purple for your helmets match better than my own :thumb 
    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Also got my FUD G1 helmet & adapter today, so can't wait to throw those on after paint! Curious to see the texture and finish quality going from flexible/polished to those.

    Making use of the free shipping code, I finally ordered me the G1 helmet and shoulder adapter. Might get two adapters if they let me edit the order. These look awesome.

    Finaly picked up the figure... So awesome! Well, aside from the mask. Now waiting for my Shapeways orders... Thank Primus they let you combine ship orders, so I attached two orders to my first one and with that all will be shipped for free.

    Ended up getting a second cannon adapter for symmetry, but also picked up the foldable neck unit from another author, back spike replacement and a snap-on forearm cannon mounting point for special poses. Now just gotta find me some good red, violet and silver paint markers. I also got a hobby base set of fully articulated gundam hands ordered, saw them used in another custom thread, with an extra part from any given gundam model kit (of which I have tons of spares) they fit in place of Galvy's hands perfectly and even fold into place just fine.

    Can't wait to get going at the customizing.

    Kind of a bummer that the PotP Hot Rodimus is a Leader class, I was hoping for a Voyager Hot Rod/Rodimus to to compliment this figure.

    Hey thanks for this! Is it a one-time use per account code?
